I had the numb feet at about mile 3 until about mile 5, I was able to carry on running through this, and like MAGIC, the numbness everntually subsided it was amazing to just phychologically overcome this, my advice to anyone, try what I did and just try to run through it, also what I did try is to wiggle my toes on my upstep, this seemed to prolong the numbess.
SO happy about this run! thanks for help people, ill keep you updated!
Yeah it gets really hard to run through it it's like in running on stumps , I have to stop and within about a minute or so the feeling returns to my feet , I'm
Going to try running with the laces in alternating holes and loosen them a bit and see how that does me.
Hi all, I have recently started to get serious about running, doing minimum 3 times a week aiming for 3 miles a time.
since running on concrete doing my 3 mile runs I have been experiancing numbing feet which starts around the toe area and then spreads to the whole foot eventually and is causing alot of discomfort when running as its almost like im running on a stump, I also experiance a tight swelling feeling around the bottom of my shins/ round the back to my calfs, but quite low to just above my ankles.
Last month I purchased a pair of aasics nimbus 15, which I had been assessed for in the sweatshop, and they seem to be generally comfortable.
on occasion i can get some lower back pain, but lately this does not even seem to be an issue.
I do not use sports socks, nor do I have any additional inner soles as suggested by the sweatshop for 45 pounds.
any help on this subject would be greatly appreciated, as I feel like most of my issues about pushing myself to do more miles is with my feet/lower legs and its becoming frustrating.
I thought id add some information about myself that might be helpful.
Im 25, weight is around 80-85kg, im 5ft10 and my body is of a muscular/stocky type, I am a generally fit person, however when I was 16 years old I shattered my right kneecap which resulted in having wires, however I have not really encountered any issues with this and have been generally active since.
one thing I can note is my muscle definition appears to be better in my left leg than in my right, maybe this is causing a balance issue.
